‘‘Hey Aussies, check out my family’s apartment that I’m selling - it’ll go really quick!... Spectacular water views to the Harbour Bridge!! If I was in Sydney more I would live there, but alas I can’t x (ps serious buyers only).’’

Wilson also posted a picture showing the view from the apartment’s balcony and a link to its posting on realestate.com.

Kate Winslet says she has got over any insecurities she has had about her body and is comfortable with her imperfections.

The Hollywood star - who has occasionally had to appear naked on screen - said she has no difficulties with looking like a ‘‘real’’ woman and has embraced the way she looks.

‘‘As I get older, I really don’t care about what people think of me and how I look - I don’t have that physical insecurity any more,’’ she said in an interview with Total Film magazine.

‘‘I just don’t have it. Plus I do feel very determined that if I’m called to do any level of nudity on screen, I have to look real, I have to look like a woman, I have to look like myself. The idea of that whole perfect thing makes me so crazy.’’

Oscar-winning Winslet found it difficult when she first had to bare all, and spent a long time coming to terms with it.

‘‘I was completely terrified for weeks beforehand - I really was terrified,’’ she said. ‘‘It was tormenting me, I couldn’t sleep - I didn’t have anybody to help me then. I really didn’t.‘‘Once you’ve done it once ... It’s not pornography. It’s not. It’s acting. It’s just part of this job.’’

Titanic actress Winslet - who became a mother to her third child Bear in December - also told how her parents sometimes have difficulties in praising her achievements because they do not want to appear as though they think any less of her siblings.

‘‘I’m one of four children. And both my sisters - my older sister and younger sister - they’re also actresses. Although they’re working, they’re doing theatre or TV. And for my mum and dad I think it’s very hard for them to express their pride in me without feeling some guilt about the others, because they want so much for them too. But they are very good at it, at remembering to say to me (and them), ’We’re really proud of you’. They are really good at that, thank God.’’


Juno star Page comes out

Actress Ellen Page has announced she is gay.

At a conference in Las Vegas yesterday for educators and counsellors who work with gay youth, the Oscar-nominated star took the opportunity to come out.

She told the audience she was tired of hiding and lying by omission, and perhaps by speaking out she could make a difference.

The 26-year-old’s speech was met by a standing ovation from the 600-strong crowd.


Charlie Sheen engaged to porn star 

Charlie Sheen is engaged to his porn star girlfriend.

The actor had dated a string of adult performers in the past and is currently with blonde star Brett Rossi.

Sheen used the Valentine’s Day weekend to pop the question.

It will be the 48-year-old’s fourth marriage.

Sheen wed Donna Peele in 1995, but they divorced a year later. In 2002 he married actress Denise Richards, who he has two children with, Sam and Lola.

Richards filed for divorce in 2005, after which Sheen began a relationship with Brooke Mueller.

They wed in 2008 and have twins Bob and Max together, but finalised their divorce in 2011, among a highly publicised custody war.

Rossi seems over the moon about the engagement and opened up about the proposal to E!.‘‘Yes! We are engaged! He even was a gentleman and got down on one knee,’’ she said. ‘‘I was not expecting it at all. We had a beautiful Valentine’s day and he proposed to me early this morning after we watched the sun rise.

‘‘The ring is classic and beautiful, but I don’t have any photos to share just yet. This is the happiest moment of both our lives. He’s my best friend and my soulmate.’’
